Alan died of bone cancer Aug. 14, 2001, at home in Falls Village, Conn. He was born Mar. 18, 1928, and came to Princeton from St. James School. He rowed on the 150-lb. crew, roomed with Dick Carrigan '50 and Jim Robertson '50 freshman year, and then with Dan Anderson and James Beuchner '50. A history major, he graduated cum laude and was a member of Cap and Gown.
